Lake Ministerial Association to host Good Friday service March 25

LAKEPORT, Calif. – The Lake Ministerial Association (LMA) is pleased to announce the 26th Annual Community Good Friday Service.

The service will be at noon on Friday, March 25, at St. John’s Episcopal Church, located at 1190 N Forbes St., Lakeport.

Good Friday is the day that Christians commemorate the death of Jesus.

This special service will help participants to experience the emotional aspects of the passion story: the betrayal, abandonment and agony of Jesus – and why we ultimately call these things “good” on Good Friday.

Throughout history churches, congregations and individual Christians have sought to enhance their understanding of the events that happened on that first Good Friday in a variety of ways.

They have sought to remember the story by reading from missives, reading the Gospel narratives, recalling the last seven sentences Jesus spoke from the cross and, for a privileged few, by traveling to the Holy Land itself and seeking to follow in the footsteps of Jesus as near as one can guess the path based on the Gospel texts.

This year the association will focus on the last sayings of Jesus from the cross.

Congregations which have confirmed participating in this year’s observance include Galilee Lutheran Church, Kelseyville Presbyterian Church, Kelseyville United Methodist Church, Lake County Bible Fellowship, Lakeport Christian Center, Lakeport Community Seventh-day Adventist Church, New Hope Community Church in Lucerne, New Life Foursquare Church and St. John’s Episcopal Church.
